hands with the president of the united states. look at that picture. the prime minister of india is standing a few feet away. now, then they go have -- let's get a picture with joe. joe's a good guy. can i get my hands on the vice president? apparently they've been used to doing this kind of stuff. look, folks. let me play this for just a moment. what if they were experts in martial arts? what if they had some kind of poison or undetectable drug on them? the secret service failed big-time here. now they're scrambling to figure out, oh, gosh, what went wrong? the "washington post" had this report. these folks, they were allowed inside, in violation of secret service policies by an outside officer of the front gate who was persuaded by the couple's manner and insistence as well as pressure of keeping lines moving on a rainy evening. well, i think there has to be a no-tolerance policy in all of this. you don't play games with the president's safety. let's see now. this is a president who has had a 400% increase in death threats. he gets about 30 a day. not to mention it's very disre

and the last thing we need to do is see the united states fall into that trap when really, we should be focused on american security and the security of the american people and issues like health care are number one. >> jack rice, what does the president have to do to get a successful conclusion in afghanistan? he and the united states? will 35,000 more troops do it? >> no, it went. what we have decided is we have tied ourselves to an imp comp enter regime. that's a fact. whether we put 10,000 or 30,000 more troops in. one more little twist to this, one of the things that is apparently going to happen, we're going to focus in on the cities. you know who else tried that? the russians. the soviets did the same thing. they determined they couldn't do this, either. this is absolutely true. the britts invaded into afghanistan twice and lost. the soviets have done this. nobody has ever successfully taken afghanistan and frankly, i have a hard time believe thag the americans are going to be any different. >> here is the president yesterday giving us a preview. >> after eight years, some of those years

of the president of the united states wearing a turbine. at the bottom it says, quote, wake up, america, remember ft. hood. joining me now is a man behind this billboard, mr. phil wolf. good to have you with us tonight. thank you for your time. >> thank you, sir. >> why did you take out this billboard? >> i think this billboard's a combination of some frustrations on questions that haven't been answered by the president. >> such as? >> let's start with where's he from? what's his background? who is he? is he american? what does he stand for? >> okay. so you obviously don't think that the president of the united states is an american citizen. >> i don't. >> okay. what evidence do you have that he's not an american citizen? >> well, i think the evidence has to be shown that he would be. that would seem to be the simpleleft thing to do. >> we missed this in the vetting process? as a country we screwed up? >> possible. >> what does jihad mean to you, mr. wolf? >> to me it means it's an extreme element of a struggle to overcome somebody. it can be interpreted probably some different ways, but to me it

back to "the ed show." on saturday, more than half of the united states senate will be trying to get health care reform done for the american people. the republicans will be trying to block debate on the bill. people are being denied coverage or dropped from coverage, families are going bankrupt. you know the numbers, and the republicans don't even want to talk about it. but they can't do it alone. you see, they need joe lieberman or ben nelson to break with the democrats to come on over to their camp. ben nelson is bragging about being the lone democrat to kill health care. he says today -- >> well, actually it's not. any way, let's bring in senator john barrasso of wyoming. we've gone back and back for six or seven months. you're kind of heading up the republican rapid response team. every time some news comes out, you're out there getting after it. so i give you credit for being in the debate on all of this. so i have to ask you, senator, is there anything that you can embrace in this senate bill as we move forward? >> well, not the overall bill. it doesn't deal with junk lawsuits
